No matter whether you are based in Sandbach or anywhere in the country, we can will manage your claim and we will arrange a medical at a centre near you .
Making a claim
Claims must be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury in most cases.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like noise-induced deafness are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is considered.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it should be demonstrated that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
How to pick the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer
Finding the best PI lawyer to act for you is a crucial step towards achieving the best settlement or award.
With some over 100 offices within 25 miles of Sandbach (according to the Solicitors Regulation Authority 2015 database), how do you make sure you choose the most appropriate solicitors' practice to take on your case?
What should be considered when checking reviews for solicitors in Sandbach?
There is often no substitute for picking up the phone and talking to a solicitor about your claim. Before picking up the phone, looking up injury lawyer reviews should give you a clear understanding of the difference between service levels offered by firms.
Do you have to choose a law firm in Sandbach?
Claimants are not restricted to local firms and can make a selection based on the success fee a solicitor charges or other service factors.
Usually, the only aspect that does require a local service is the medical exam. This exam provides necessary medical evidence to support your claim, and is carried out in partnership with a member of our national medical network.
Wherever your solicitor is based, they will arrange for a local medical expert to carry out the exam.
The difference in the amount of personal injury success fees between law firms working on Conditional Fee Agreements is surprising.
To illustrate the point, the amount of compensation retained by a Claimant accepting a settlement of £40,047 for serious arm injuries can range from £24,028 to £34,040.
